Mumbai: Popular fashion designer Masaba Gupta, daughter of veteran actress Neena Gupta and cricketer Vivian Richards, has got engaged to her beau Madhu Mantena, a film producer, at a ceremony here.
“Kal hamaari sagai thi. Aaj hum khush hain. Aur 7 din mein hamaara show hai! Thank you for the love, now back to wrk,” Masaba, who is widely known for her quirky designs and colourful prints, posted on Twitter on Wednesday, along with a photograph of herself all decked up for her special day.
For her engagement, Masaba flaunted an ebony and ivory neoprene lehenga by designer duo Shivan and Naresh. The ensemble, though elegant, was a far cry from the blast of colours that the young designer often uses on her own creations.
Masaba, a former fashion director at label Satya Paul, had been dating Mantena — who has produced films like “Ghajini” and “Rann” in the past, and is associated with Phantom Films — for some time before they got engaged on Tuesday.
Their engagement celebration, held at rooftop restaurant and lounge Asilo, was attended by celebrities including Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Huma Qureshi. Huma stepped out wearing an Anita Dongre creation for the engagement.
“We loved hosting -@MasabaG& -#MadhuMantena’s engagement at -#ASILO last evening. Congratulations to the lovely couple,” read a tweet from the official Twitter handle of Asilo.
Masaba will now get back to preparations for her show at the forthcoming edition of the Lakme Fashion Week here next week.
